The Rural Heritage Museum is housed in the historic native stone Montague Building. Montague was built in 1919 and originally used as a library. It is on the National Register of Historic Places. Inside are those artifacts which are relevant to the history and culture of this area and the wide Southern Appalachian area. The exhibits and educational programs for the public and for students and faculty members are designed to assist in understanding rural heritage. These exhibits are ever-changing so once you visit, you can return to see other items in the future. You might catch a glimpse of antique farm implements, hooked rugs, weaving looms, depending on when you visit so come back often. Hours are 11am to 5pm Tuesday through Sunday (CLOSED on Monday).
